Seeing as today is my birthday and I’m going to be in Rock, Cornwall on a short break, I thought I would post this Seaside card to celebrate my birthday spent by the beautiful Camel Estuary! I have been buying various metal craft dies from China, either on EBay or Ali Express. Great dies at unbelievable prices! Anyway, I couldnt wait to use my latest set, and here is the end result. Used upside down cloud dies for the waves, and a hill die for the land. Used Brusho Inks as my sky background, and Distress Oxide Inks on all the other elements! And to finish, a Tattered Lace Washing Line Happy Birthday die.
I embossed gears onto black card and used my trusty Treasure Gold to highlight the gears. Layered with blue card and XCut words in same blue card. A quick card for a male friends birthday.
Just loving my clouds embossing folders, and I have some new weather stamps so here are a couple of cards I made. One is an aperture card with the clouds embossed onto the acetate and the other is a larger card. The umbrella and raindrops are dies.
Love the way the print turned out here. All I had to do was add some die cuts and voila!
My friend gives me her Christmas Cards to upcycle and this little robin on a branch is delightful, so I cut him out and put him onto an embossed (StampinUp Cloudy Days) background. Used a red ribbon from another card of the same Christmas card batch. XCut words.
Another fab Gelli Print that turned out well, and I added the dies to create the scene.
The first card has an embossed background called Dot Matrix, with a butterfly inked with Brusho Inks which I pressed my stamp into it. It came up beautifully! Made the word die cuts with the same ink colours. Then I made the second card the same way, then layered it, and Im quite pleased with the result.
Its amazing how much time it takes just to find the matching papers for a card before you can begin! Finally I managed it and here is the result. Im really pleased with the design. I cut the mannequin from XCut Haberdashery dies, and the wings are stamped and cut.
Another Gelli background with a marbled effect. I added the two girls and hearts surrounding us!
This is a Gelli print background with a marbled effect. Gold embossing powder on edges, and a stamped butterfly from StampinUp with decorative swirls. A mannequin shape for the butterflies body. Alphabet tiles spell out Flutter By….
